Oki Sutanto, who operated the Two Brothers Hibachi food truck, is remodeling a storefront at 301 N. Shackleford Road for a noodle bar to be called Aji Ramen Bar. Sutanto hopes to have Aji open by the end of July. The restaurant, at an intimate 1,200 square feet, will seat 40. The menu will include a noodles in rich broth with a variety of toppings. Sutanto noted the rise of ramen restaurants in bigger cities and thought, “OK, let’s give it a shot,” he told the Times. He expects to add appetizers and apply for a liquor license after he has been open for a while.

It looks like the building under construction at 2815 Cantrell Road, where Shogun Japanese Steakhouse once stood, will be a Starbucks Coffee, according to a plumbing permit application to the state Department of Health.
